    True. Many children lost their lives while imitating a reality show, which they had seen on TV.

    In a place a child of 4 years strangled her younger sister with her Chunni and killed her

    May I know the name of that children reality show which inspired another child to strangle her younger sister.

    I don't think banning the idea of a children's reality show is the solution. There's no question that it's a lot hectic for a kid and the people running the show tend to think only about the profit. But the child gets a platform to showcase and enhance his/her talent in front of millions of people. That kind of exposure also helps other children to learn and develop skills of their own.

    There should be regulations which keep a check on how much the kids are made to work. The children should obviously be with a guardian most of the time so that they get emotional support.

    Yes. that makes sense  such shows should be shown, under the guidance of parents.or Censors should  make a clear cut instruction that these movies are not for children below a particular age

    Abhishek, it is not just the matter of hard work for children, but it is also about the damage such shows inflict on a child's personality and their sense of esteem and self worth. I only saw a dance show once and it really pained me to watch little innocent children mimicking the moves of cine stars. It was disgusting to watch little girls gyrating provocatively with heavily made up faces. They are losing their innocence at such an early age! Kids who succeed at these shows are made to feel that they are at the top of the world and are made over confident. Personally, I feel that teaching children dance and music is normal but putting on  a show of their talents in such competitions is not done.

    You are absolutely right that they get their platform to show their talents. And as far as I know, even now in most of the cases, the child is accompanied by one guardian or the other. But the presence of a guardian might not be able to help him or her deal with the high pressure they sometimes undergo.  For instance, sometimes the judges speak in a very harsh manner which embarrass these participants and effect their personality. I once read about a participant of song based reality show. One of the judges had used very harsh words when giving the feedback. She felt so embarrass that she lost her voice for nearly 6months as she was psychologically affected.

    Also as Kalyani rightly pointed out, its disgusting when these children some as young as 5 years start dancing provocatively like an adult. Where are their innocence while dancing in such manners? But not all the judges appreciate such dance. Once I watched an episode of Boogie woogie in which the Judges had scolded the child participant's mother for allowing her daughter to dance provocatively. Even though that participant had danced very nicely they refused to award her as they found her dance very provocative. There should be more judges like them.

    At present, an ongoing musical show on Zee tv encourages a little boy to showcase his talent. Though he is not a participant, is actually used as a comic relief. What I feel bad about it is why the channel promotes such glamourisation. The child must be considering himself as someone very extraordinary which may not lead to a healthy personality.

    Yes, sometimes judges are too harsh which is very humiliating for the children. Even in some cases, judges ridicule them in a very raw way which is again improper so there should be a code of conduct for the judges and the anchor of the show.
